All kinds of Italian foods, excellently prepared. They only have square pizza, which is a little too much bread for me, but all the other food I've tried is excellent. You can eat inside or out, which I prefer, the only problem is it is difficult to find parking, but it is worth it!

I went to L&B Spumoni about 14 years ago. It was so memorable that I've been thinking about it from time to time over the past years. It's not easy to get there because it's in Brooklyn. When I go to NY I stay in the city. I don't venture out on my own to Brooklyn. This time I decided... More

Traditional Brooklyn pizza established in 1929. Served family style, delicious authentic Italian food. I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, though it did get pretty loud. The salad dressing was out of this world! Pizza crust thick and cooked to perfection. Topped with fresh cheeses and fresh tomato sauce. Parking is a bit of a nightmare but subway stop is near by.

Authentic family style Italian restaurant. Food was good. Service OK. Spumoni ice cream dish AMAZING! Best to go with larger group and share dishes. Outside seating available.

Second visit and still loving the place. Service has been improved so the wait for hot pizza has been decreased. Sicilian was delicious. Thin crust was better than could ever want. Spumoni was out of this world. Have not tried the formal dining room, but people leaving were raving about the calamari.

Pizza at this place is the greatest. Whenever I think of pizza this is the it place. We moved away but whenever we go back into b'klyn it's the must go to. Always fresh, always crowded. As a kid, especially in the summer we would go for a slice and a spamoni. Now I have kids of my own and... More

You haven't truly experienced Brooklyn if you have not gone to L&B Spumoni Gardens. Every child born in Brooklyn grew up with the experience of their family taking treks to L&B if they didn't live in the neighborhood.If they've moved away they make pilgrimages back to Spumoni Gardens and take several pies back home to place in their freezers for...

Busy busy place. Parking can be an issue. Nice outdoor seating area. Walk up and order a slice- round or square. We prefer the square. Each slice is $2.75 Also has a ice cream / spumoni counter as well as a sit down restaurant. Very large pasta portions. You will not be disappointed!

So it's called "the square," but when you get your own then you'll realize it's more like a rectangle... Listen, I don't care if the thing is shaped like Donald Trump's toupee - it's still the best dang Sicilian pizza in New York by far. I'll make this plain and simple - everyone else is fighting for second. You can... More

It's a small square pizza, covered with sweet tomatoes sauce on top, cheese below, that can barely be tasted as it mixes with the gooey dough. Why does it sell? I don't get it. The spumoni ices (pistachio) were very good; a bit overpriced, but tasty. What else?

Thank Mitchell I
